Best Cookie Dough EVER!


good cookie recipe

I checked out Milk & Cookies: 89 Heirloom Recipes from New York’s Milk & Cookies Bakery from our local library and am I ever glad I did.  I kid you not when I say that this is the best cookie dough ever.  So much so that I can’t stop eating the cookies I made.  They are in my freezer but I’ve been going there all hours of the day and night and breaking off a little bit here and a little bit there.

What’s so great about this cookie dough recipe, in addition to its taste, is that it is a vanilla cookie dough base that begs for you to add your favorite ingredients.  Here I’ve added dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and dried cherries.

I think the secret to this amazing recipe is a combo of adding finely ground old fashioned rolled oats to the batter (you wouldn’t actually know there is oatmeal in it) and the right combination of granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract.  Give them a try – you won’t regret it! I’ve adapted the recipe a tad to make it easier for the home cook.
